Ingersoll is an American watch company that was founded in 1892 in New York. The company is best known for its "dollar watches," which were affordable timepieces that were sold for one dollar each. The company also made a name for itself with its high-quality pocket watches and wristwatches.
It was acquired by the British watch company Smiths Group in 1966, and the brand went through several changes of ownership in the following years. Today, the Ingersoll brand is owned by Zeon Ltd., a British company that specializes in watch and clock manufacturing. They produce a range of watches, including classic dress watches, sport watches, and aviation-inspired timepieces. The company is also known for its use of unique dial designs and bold colors. Ingersoll often features innovative technologies such as automatic movements, chronograph functions, and moon phase complications in their watches.
In recent years, Ingersoll has also focused on producing limited edition watches, often in collaboration with other brands or artists. These watches are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts alike, and are known for their unique design and high-quality craftsmanship.
